2019 Honda Ridgeline

What We Like

The comfort, space, interior quality and driving experience of a crossover; the innovative bed storage and tailgate; the fuel-efficient engine; the excellent crash scores

What We Don't

The frustrating touchscreen; only one cab, bed and engine choice; the 2-wheel-drive trucks are FWD; less towing capability than competitors

What's New in the 2019 Honda Ridgeline?

A second USB port is now standard. A sunroof and a power-sliding rear window are also now standard on the RTL trim and above.

Which Ridgeline is the Best?

We recommend the RTL. For about $1,500 more than the Sport, you get leather-wrapped seats and steering wheel, heated power seats and a sunroof. It's a good deal. And if you want extra infotainment tech, it may also be worth it to pay a bit more for the RTL-T.

How Much Does a 2019 Honda Ridgeline Cost?

The 2019 Ridgeline is available in RT, Sport, RTL, RTL-T, RTL-E and Black Edition.

The base RT ($29,990) is FWD only and comes standard with 18-inch alloy wheels, an integrated trailer hitch, the flip-down swing-out tailgate, a locking under-bed trunk, rear privacy glass, automatic headlights, a backup camera, a 60/40-split lift-up rear seat, two USB ports, a 7-speaker audio system with a 5-in color display, and an auxiliary audio jack.

The Sport ($33,390) adds proximity entry, push-button start, remote ignition, fog lights and tri-zone automatic climate control. There's nothing especially sporty about it. Note that AWD brings its special Sand and Mud off-road settings.

The RTL ($34,870) adds a sunroof, an acoustic windshield, heated mirrors (with AWD), a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated power front seats (8-way driver, 4-way passenger), driver lumbar adjustment, leather upholstery and a power-sliding rear window.

The RTL-T ($37,000) adds LED running lights, Honda's LaneWatch blind spot camera, an auto-dimming mirror, an 8-in touchscreen, integrated navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, satellite and HD radio and a 7-speaker sound system.

The RTL-E ($41,920) comes standard with AWD plus forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, blind spot monitoring (replaces LaneWatch), rear cross-traffic warning, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, LED headlights, LED bed lighting, a sunroof, parking sensors, a truck-bed power outlet, a heated steering wheel, driver memory settings, an upgraded 8-speaker sound system and a truck-bed audio system that uses the bed liner as a giant speaker.

The Black Edition ($43,420) is really just an RTL-E with blacked-out exterior trim and special interior trim.

Honda Ridgeline Safety

Is the 2019 Honda Ridgeline a Safe Car?

Every 2019 Honda Ridgeline comes with 4-wheel antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, front-side airbags, full-length side-curtain airbags and a backup camera. Plus, since it's related to the Honda Pilot family hauler, it has lower LATCH anchors in all three back seating positions than a regular midsize truck does. The RTL-T includes Honda's LaneWatch blind spot camera. The RTL-E and Black Edition include forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, blind spot monitoring (replaces LaneWatch) and a rear cross-traffic warning system.

The government awarded the Ridgeline five stars for its overall, frontal and side crash protection. The nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave it a Top Safety Pick award for its best-possible performance in all pertinent categories. This is truly impressive among midsize trucks.

2019 Honda Ridgeline vs the competition

2019 Toyota Tacoma -- If you want something more rugged and fun that can get seriously dirty off the beaten path, this is your truck. However, it's less comfortable, spacious and refined than its competitors.

2019 Chevrolet Colorado -- The Colorado is basically a miniature full-size truck and falls in between the Ridgeline and the Tacoma regarding comfort and character.

2019 GMC Canyon -- The Canyon is the Colorado's GMC twin. It differs with its more luxurious Denali trim level.

2019 Ford Ranger -- The Ranger is returning for 2019, making its way from other markets to ply its trade back in the big leagues of North America. It's a traditional pickup like the others in the segment.

Used Honda Ridgeline -- Most of the unique elements in today's Ridgeline (the dual-action tailgate, the bed trunk, the flip-up rear seat and the crossover driving manners) could be found in the previous generation. Sure, it had odd styling and a more utilitarian interior, but those on a tighter budget would be wise to consider the original Ridgeline.
